Using ODMAP to Guide Response to the Opioid Epidemic
The Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program (ODMAP) is a web-based tool developed and supported by the Washington/Baltimore HIDTA to provide real-time suspected overdose surveillance data across jurisdictions to support the critical fight against opioid overdoses. In this webinar, instructors demonstrate the value of ODMAP and describe how two jurisdictions are using this free tool to identify overdose “hot spots” and trends of concern, and develop coordinated public safety, public health, and behavioral health intervention strategies.
Target Audience: Law enforcement personnel and public health, behavioral health, and treatment practitioners.
Overall Objectives: To explain the history and functionality of ODMAP, including how officers can enter data from the field and how agencies can access those data; enumerate the strategic and tactical applications of real-time overdose data from across jurisdictions; and demonstrate ways that law enforcement and their public health partners can use ODMAP to develop local and regional strategies for responding to and addressing opioid use disorder in their communities.
Project Funding Provided By: The Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice through their Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Program (COSSAP)
Includes: A webinar in which W/B HIDTA personnel and law enforcement officers demonstrate how ODMAP is used in the field for submitting real-time overdose data, how agencies access and use the data, and how those data can be shared with public health officials to respond to opioid use in their jurisdictions.
